Although your blood keeps you alive and is rushing through your body constantly, it’s easy to forget that it’s even there.
Proper blood flow is important because it ensures that the heart isn’t overworked (in the case of high blood pressure) and that the organs and bodily tissues aren’t starved of oxygen or nutrients (in the case of low blood pressure).
Certain lifestyle habits, like inactivity, chronic stress and poor diet can dramatically increase your blood pressure.
If you like feel your heart beating too fast and your arteries are being strained, simply try this 5-minutes trick.
What Is High Blood Pressure ?
According to the Mayo clinic, high blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure (1).
Blood pressure can also rise if you’re feeling anxious or angry or if you’ve been inactive for too long (2). The condition is usually managed through harsh prescription drugs called antihypertensives (3).
